US authorities have been charged 16 more officials following an investigation into corruption at FIFA.
The new indictment, released by the Department of Justice in Washington, came hours after the arrest of two FIFA vice-presidents in Zurich on Thursday.
Former Brazil football federation Chief Ricardo Teixeira was among those accused of being “involved in criminal schemes involving well over $200m (£132m) in bribes and kickbacks”.
FIFA said it would “fully co-operate”.
Earlier, CONCACAF president Alfredo Hawit and Conmebol president Juan Angel Napout were held in a dawn raid at a Swiss hotel, arrested on suspicion of accepting millions of dollars of bribes, at the request of the US authorities.
Hawit, 64, is interim president for North, Central America and Caribbean football, while Napout, 57, oversees football in the South American confederation.
The Swiss hotel is the same location where several officials from world football’s governing body were arrested in May.
FIFA’s executive committee has been meeting in the city, voting on reforms.
Current Brazil football president, Marco Polo del Nero is also on the new “superseding” 92-count indictment, which alleges “racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering conspiracies” with “sustained abuse of the defendants’ positions for financial gain.”
The current and former senior football executives charged are:
US attorney general Loretta Lynch said: “The betrayal of trust set forth here is outrageous. The scale of corruption alleged herein is unconscionable.
“And the message from this announcement should be clear to every culpable individual who remains in the shadows, hoping to evade our investigation: you will not wait us out, you will not escape our focus.”
Chief of investigation Richard Weber of the IRS’s criminal investigation division said, “Good intent has been replaced by greed and misguided goals.
“This case has been nothing short of one of the most complex, worldwide financial investigations ever conducted.”
